Limited Capacity seats available

A growing body of literature now suggests that use of telepsychiatry to provide mental health care has the potential to mitigate the workforce shortage that directly affects access to care, especially in remote and underserved areas. This workshop will describe NC Statewide Telepsychiatry Project that is providing evidence-based care by connecting 60-80 hospital emergency departments via telepsychiatry across the state of North Carolina.
